    :confused: Had space key Sticking; easily removed key by unsnaping key cover from three pressure keys (4 snap points each); was able to remove piece of something stopping keyfrom being pressed; Now how do I re-install the space bar cover. I can get it on and working only when I press the center, or I can get it to take presses anywhere, but I cannot get it to return to the up position. Either senario, but not both. There are two wires (I think used as springs) that I don't know how to set or install properly. Can anyone descripe proper installation of these two wires??? Or the entire key for that matter!

    Thanks,

    You're right, in that, it has something to do with the wires. They act as a slim/compact spring, but they are tricky to get back in place. Look around on http://www.ifixit.com/Guide/ or search the web for other repair guides. Alternately, you could try a "genius" (generally a person with sub-genius IQ) at a nearby Apple store...if there is one nearby. They'll often do simple repairs like this for free.

    Thanks for ifixit.com they only have info on the entire keyboard installation - at least what I have been able to find. I now have the key working with pressure everywhere, but now is must be touched to make it pop up into proper position. http://forums.macrumors.com/images/smilies/mad.gif Still looking f or help, but will call genus at Apple Store . Do they do phone fex?

    Thanks
